It looks like Malcolm Butler isn’t the only member of the Patriots going to the big screen.

According to Deadline Hollywood, Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson, the writers behind Disney’s “The Finest Hours” and who were nominated for an Oscar for “The Fighter”, along with New York Times bestselling author Casey Sherman, are planning a movie and book about Tom Brady.

Dave Wedge, who was Sherman’s co-author with “Boston Strong” will also be part of the book.

The book and film will focus on Brady and the Patriots’ comeback win over the Falcons in Super Bowl LI, but will also hit on the Patriots’ and Brady’s ability to overcome the obstacles of Deflategate.

The report says contact has already been made with players inside the locker room to help provide a first-hand look at what went on behind the scenes both during the year and in the game.
